Bad Advice/Words of Non-Wisdom
Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Well, it has bee over 2 years since my last blog entry... a lot has changed in my life - I got a job, quit said job, and I am now working as a caretaker again - which in itself is a long story.
What has remained the same? My size... in fact, I am probably about 5-10 lbs bigger now... Ugh. Which brings me to my Title "Bad Advice/Words of Non-Wisdom."
Have you ever gotten "advice" or "wisdom" from someone you care about a lot? Well, I have - a good part of my life. Because I have always been a "thicker" girl, an important person in my life tried to "encourage" me to lose weight.
I am 26 and single. I am about 30 lbs over weight.
According to an important person in my life, "guys can't help but NOT be attracted to you because of your weight" - and "maybe you should lower your standards... if you aren't willing to lose weight for a guy, you better start finding fat men attractive."
Every time I try to lose weight, or flirt with a guy, I hear these words in the back of my mind... the result? I generally give up... and eat my emotions and loneliness.
I'm trying to start over. I'm trying to get in shape - not so guys will "be attracted to" me, but so I will find myself attractive. This is going to be difficult... Here it goes!
